Institut Le Rosey commonly referred to as Le Rosey or simply Rosey, is a private boarding school in Rolle, Switzerland. Founded in 1880 by Paul-Émile Carnal on the site of the 14th-century Château du Rosey in the town of Rolle in the canton of Vaud, it is among the oldest boarding schools in Switzerland and one of the most prestigious and expensive schools in the world, for which it is known as the "School of Kings".

Explore one of the most exceptional Swiss boarding schools. A place where rich tradition meets modern outlook in an unparalleled international learning and living environment for students of 8-18 years.

A 100% boarding school, all Roseans are boarders whose academic year is shared between two campuses in Switzerland: the Main Campus, set on a magnificent manorial estate in Rolle and the school’s Winter Campus, a beautiful village of chalets in the charming ski resort of Gstaad.

Le Rosey’s holistic education is focused on discovering and developing the talents of all students: strong bilingual academics lead to the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma or French Baccalaureate, with many Roseans choosing to learn two or even three other foreign languages alongside. These are complemented by a rigorous extracurricular programme, specially designed to encompass participation in sports, technology, the Arts, service learning and cultural activities, and for Roseans to seize every opportunity to expand their interests and commitments.

The culture at Le Rosey is one of passion for values, grounded in the history of a world-renowned Swiss boarding school, and one which continues to be told by thousands of alumni across the globe. Friendship and solidarity, self-respect and respect for others, intelligent discipline, courage to face challenges and the willingness to overcome them all distinguish student life for Roseans and prepare them to succeed independently in a constantly changing world.
